PRODUCTIVITY UP FOR STAFFING AGENCY WITH SMARTSEARCH ONLINE

OCEANSIDE, CA, Oct. 8, 1999 - United Staffing Services (USS), a Philadelphia, PA staffing agency founded in 1985, had recently restructured the company and wanted to streamline its staffing efforts. Manually processing resumes was cutting into more important tasks. The company also needed to coordinate efforts with other offices statewide in Blair, Harrisburg and Pittsburgh.

The solution, according to Angela Auddino, USS administrative assistant, was implementing SmartSearch Online from Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS; http://www.aps.com). An Internet-based staffing management system, SmartSearch Online eliminates the need for companies to purchase expensive hardware, software or technical support. SmartSearch Online interacts with APS' SmartSearch database. It features a 'user-friendly' interface and the system can be learned in minutes.

USS' primary staffing areas are mental health, mental retardation services, office staffing and industrial staffing. Positions the company fills include technicians, therapeutic staff support, aides, behavior specialist consultants, mobile therapists, case managers, and psychiatric evaluators. Auddino said USS' staffing coordinators receive a job order for a client that states they need certain requirements and skills. The data is inputted into SmartSearch Online and the system instantly retrieves appropriate resumes from USS' resume database which currently totals 2,862 and is maintained off-site by APS.

"We're able to quickly evaluate and rank candidates," Auddino said. "The reporting capabilities help us statewide and we're also able to track the performance of our staffing coordinators. We also don't have to worry about ongoing administrative and maintenance costs as we have no hardware or software requirements - APS handles all of this for us."

APS, established in 1985, is located in Oceanside, CA, about 30 miles north of San Diego. The firm pioneered scanning-based staffing management and has since become a nationwide industry leader in introducing optical scanning technology for resume retrieval, report generation and application tracking. In 1990, APS created SmartSearch, a jobs-driven, scanning-based staffing management system used by companies nationwide.
